"Incorporating Racial Equity Principles Into Our Practices" 

 

Molly Mead of Praxis Consulting will facilitate an important conversation about how we can incorporate racial equity principles and practices into our consulting work. She’ll start the session by talking about how Racial Equity and DEI are both similar and different. She will then share elements from a tool the New England Alliance regional group has been developing – a tool that lists questions consultants might ask themselves and the client at every stage of consulting to advance racial equity in the client organization. A majority of the hour will be spent in small groups so those attending can talk about our own successes and challenges in incorporating Racial Equity into our work.                     

 

 

Molly Mead  spent much of her career in higher education teaching how to incorporate race, class, and gender analyses in developing equitable and just social policies. She and Mary Ellen Capek wrote Effective Philanthropy, a book that argues that foundations must become deeply diverse in order to be effective. Her research on youth development programs revealed the ways many of those programs don’t serve girls effectively. She has done racial equity and diversity and inclusion consulting with a range of clients including Drexel University, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee, SAGE Advocacy and Services for LGBT Elders, and Lambda Legal. Finally, she has come to understand and embrace that there is always more to learn about diversity.
